5 June 1560. Mr. Secretary Cecil to Sir William Petre
From the Original
THE French lye this Night at Durham, and we at Borrohbrigg; we will be at Newcastle, with God's Leave, on Frydaye. The Lord Ruthen is sent from the Scotts to Barwyck, and so I thynk will come to Newcastle. I understand this brute of Treaty maketh the Lords of Scotland very perplex, wherin we must, as we maye, see some remedy, for otherwise the French will sone espye an oppen Gate to practise to our Damage. We are mervellosly troobled, for that we now understand that the Trayne of Monsieur de Randan be allmost all Captaynes and Ingynors, which meane to be occupyed both at Barwyk and in Scotland, to enter if they can, into Lethe; if there salve Conduct served not, they shuld not depart from Newcastle. We will prove if the Scotts may take Exception to them for there effensive Qualliteis. I besech yow, Sir, lett my Lord Marquis have theis Lettres, and so I end full wery 5th Junii, 1560.
Yours assured W. Cecill.
To the Right Honorable Sir William Peter Knight, Chancellor of the Garter, and of the Quene's Majestie's Privie Councell.
